When Matt LaFleur took over in 2019 as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, many had questions about who he was and why he was hired for the job.
And nobody but Packers’ fans gave him a fighting chance.
Analysts and journalists say the reason he was hired was because he was a young head coach who spent time with Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan — two young offensive-minded gurus who were re-shaping how offense was being played in the National Football League.
Just put yourself back in February of 2019. The Patriots just beat the Rams in the Super Bowl and, boy, did Packers’ fans want New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to be selected as the next head coach of the green and gold.
